The Art of the Hollywood Side Hustle

As this special weekend section of LA Times outlines, some of the industry’s biggest actors have turned their sights on new business ventures outside of Hollywood. Sure, they still act, write, direct and produce, but these savvy stars are also entrepreneurs, launching businesses in the worlds of beauty, home, food, spirits and clothing. What’s caused the proliferation of these side gigs in the last few years, why have they seemingly become the norm and are they here to stay?
The cover artwork for this project invites the reader to disappear into a world of extremely saturated color and disproportionate form, where commercial products and stardom collide. The exaggerated colors and forms represent the chaos, the joy, and the surrealism of consumerism and celebrity culture.
